I thought I would share basic knowledge of Controlling Red Cameras. I use this for quick testing. I do not use Red SDK, only API Doc. It is a very simple communication.

Lets assume the camera's IP is, and connected over ethernet or wifi With an OSX or Linux system. Then simply type in a Shell:

nc 1111

This will open a socket and connect to on port 1111, You'll now see a steady stream of Red Camera Traffic to your console. Simply Paste in a correct Command to set/get settings.

This is the Record Toggle Command: #$EXT:S:RECORD:2:\n
